Story behind YJ0MM

Vanuatu story behind this team begins not so long ago, in August 2009, after Ante (9A4DU) who already got Vanuatu's licence YJ0DU, and Nikola (9A6DX) announced their activity from this nice pacific republic. Team is soon after joined by Hrle (9A6XX) and Marko (9A8MM), and just a bit over a month prior to the activity team is powered by Franko (9A3DW) and much serious activity could be planned.  Most recently team was joined by Zeljko (VK6VY/9A5AVV). Time was short but general plan was to have two medium power stations on the air and be able to log greatly over 10.000 contacts in 6-7 days of activity despite the sun cycle minimum and high wet season in southern pacific at the time being. Unfortunatly, Ante (9A4DU) and Nikola (9A6DX) were forced to leave out from the team due to their working commitments - as for the rest of us, flight tickets were in hands and team was excited to go! All these circumstances made this team's pacific advanture assured and we are happy that many amateurs all over the world took a part in it!

Thank you for working us!
Franko (9A3DW), Hrle (9A6XX), Marko (9A8MM), Zeljko (VK6VY/9A5AVV)
